Description

The Mission of the Foundation
PXE International
• Initiates, funds and conducts research on pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE)
• Provides support for individuals and families affected by PXE
• Provides resources for healthcare professionals.

PXE International initiates and conducts research. Currently, we are conducting an extensive epidemiological study. This study consists of a substantial online questionnaire answered by individuals affected by PXE. The information is collected and analyzed to characterize the disease and discover potential biomarkers.

Responsibilities

PXE International is small organization and so all staff contribute in multiple ways.
Intern responsibilities include interacting directly with affected individuals by phone and email, reviewing completed questionnaires, resolving issues with questionnaires, digitizing medical records, and other tasks related to the development and progression of this study. All staff also contribute to day to day nonprofit organizational tasks. Filing, scanning, organizing, and devising new strategies for our various processes is all critically important.

In addition, the student may pick a specific project to work on. This can be anything from a fundraiser to a new tool for our website and so on.

Requirements

Interest in epidemiology, large-scale studies and health are encouraged. Good communication, computer, Microsoft Office, database and phone skills are highly preferred. PXE International welcomes applicants in all stages of academic or professional development. This is an unpaid position with a $100/week travel and expenses stipend. Hours are negotiable.

Please send your resume, cover letter, 2 references, and a writing sample to Christine Vocke, Director of Education and Support, at cvocke@pxe.org to apply.
